Nick Kyrgios plans to return to the tour next month after doctors found no nerve damage in his elbow. The
Australian teenager withdrew from Delray Beach and Acapulco with the injury.

"I'm sure in his mind it's been far from ideal, but he's been pretty good at adopting a long-term approach towards it," his coach Simon Rea told the Sydney Morning Herald.

Kyrgios has been working on his fitness while sidelined and began serving last week, he said.

His return is scheduled to begin at a series of clay events in the United States. Kyrgios, who won a round at the French Open last year, will then aim to get into the qualifying event this year.
